obama another four years. we'll focus on three election topics incredibly important issues that some how failed to make headlines in this brutal campaign. first the war on drugs. ethan nadelman said although obama has been a disappointment in some ways romney would be a disaster in fighting the the war on drugs. then in the aftermath of super storm sandy, climate change. it still has not been a critical part of our political debate. we'll ask josh becker why president obama deserves an a-plus in the way he handled hurricane sandy. and then we weigh in on what to expect if governor romney goes to the white house. we'll bring a look at the tight race with fresh statistics from dave goldberg, and finally jesse jackson why obama's track record is enough to give him a second term. we'll begin with the war on drugs. ethan nadelman wants to legalize marijuana among others things. he has a clear message. take marijuana out of the courts. tax it like other drug and move on. ethan. great to have you on the show. >> it's great to be here. >> gavin: election in just days. do you expect truly a d
